Alteryx Design Pattern: Quickly Creating Test or Sample Data
You want to know something can work (ie test) or you want to get started on a project or keep moving while data at the source might have a problem that is being addressed. Either way you don’t want to stop moving because of external situations. I use this all the time when I am creating examples for others or creating data sets for a macro I am building.
- Input Data
- Filter to subset if needed
- Select data you want to use (you can do this by rows or values in a column)
- Right click, select “Copy Selected Cells with Headers”
- Right click on the blank canvas, select Paste
